Agreement Represents Expanded Role for Iteris During Multi-Year, $1.9 Billion Construction Project
- ClearGuide, utilizing traffic data from HERE Technologies, provides real-time, historical and contextual transportation analytics to improve safety and mobility
- Access to real-time data, historical analysis, visualization and reporting will help manage and minimize construction impacts to improve traffic congestion, safety and mobility for 370,000 daily southern California drivers
SANTA ANA, Calif. – July 28, 2020 – Iteris, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITI), the global leader in smart mobility infrastructure management, today announced that OC 405 Partners is upgrading to the ClearGuide™ solution as part of the I-405 Improvement Project in southern California, supporting its traffic management operations during construction.
With real-time and historical traffic data from HERE Technologies – a global leader in mapping and location platform services – ClearGuide gives OC 405 Partners – the joint venture team responsible for delivering the project – the ability to manage and minimize construction impacts, and increase safety and mobility for 370,000 daily southern California road users during the construction phase of the $1.9 billion project.
Under the terms of the one-year software-as-a-service contract, ClearGuide, a component of the ClearMobility™ Platform, will give OC 405 Partners access to powerful features including: dynamic maps to support detailed traffic analysis during construction; features to help identify and mitigate congestion; animations to analyze events and optimize response plans; historical trend reports and dynamic congestion charts to track reliability and support planning of project detour routes in and around the cities of Costa Mesa, Fountain Valley, Huntington Beach, Westminster and Seal Beach.
Since the I-405 Improvement project’s launch in March 2017, Iteris has supported work on freeway intelligent transportation system (ITS) and 405 Express Lanes infrastructure design, temporary ITS infrastructure for use during construction, development of the project traffic management plan, and signal design. In May 2018, Iteris was subsequently awarded a $2.4 million contract to deploy temporary ITS infrastructure for use during construction. In May 2019, Iteris was awarded a further $1.4 million in new contracts for traffic manager support, construction operations and maintenance, and associated construction phase services. The new contract for ClearGuide brings total contract awards so far to $10.2 million. The I-405 Improvement Project – undertaken by the Orange County Transportation Authority in cooperation with the California Department of Transportation – is one of the largest transportation infrastructure projects in the nation. The multi-year improvement project will be completed in 2023.
“It is our privilege to further expand our role in this vital initiative to help make roads safer and more efficient for residents and commuters in Orange County and the Los Angeles region,” said Scott Perley, vice president, Transportation Systems at Iteris. “ClearGuide will provide real-time and historical traffic data that will offer actionable insights to support safer mobility and traffic management operations during the construction phase of this historic project.”
OC 405 Partners joins over 20 government agencies and municipalities throughout North America, including Transport Canada, Minnesota DOT, Utah DOT, Virginia DOT, South Carolina DOT and the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), that use the powerful transportation analytics capabilities of Iteris’ mobility intelligence and performance measurement solutions to manage, measure and optimize complex transportation networks.
